Description

This print was inspired by the sunlight filtering through the trees on a cold January morning.  There are lots of pine woods here in the Brecks, but this is one of my favourite places to walk my Labrador pup Lola.  I’ve since discovered that these woods are actually called Grenadiers plantation, which didn’t seem to work as a title,  though I’d love to discover where the name came from.

 

This original reduction linocut is from a small variable edition of 18. The reduction method (my favourite technique) uses a single piece of lino to produce a multi-coloured print. The lino is gradually cut away as each layer is printed and the image emerges. Sometimes, only a very small printable area remains for the final, darkest tone. As the block is essentially destroyed during the process, a reduction print can never be reprinted.

 

Print size 180 x 265mm. Hand printed on Somerset Satin 250g paper using a small relief press. Due to the nature of the printmaking process minor variations can occur between prints, making each one a truly unique piece of artwork.

 

Each print is numbered, titled, signed at the bottom and mounted in a neutral colour to fit a standard 12 x 16″ frame.  The artwork will be shipped flat protected by strong cardboard packaging and sent by tracked mail.
